In what will surely go down as one of the most enjoyable Monday Nights in history, last night we reviewed our 27-page operating agreement. Yes, beer was involved. Drafty Kilt, specifically. Operating agreements are rarely sexy, and ours is no exception. However, it’s important that we take the time upfront to hammer out how our company is going to work. We are especially sensitive to this because Jeff, Joel, and I are all friends, and we don’t want to subject our friendships to any undue stress that could have been avoided by a shared understanding of expectations and roles at the outset.
So while talking about tax implications and voting rights is not quite as fun as brewing beer, it’s an important component of starting a brewery. Fun fact: ab initio is a Latin term meaning “from the beginning”! Now go dazzle your friends!
The good news for YOU is that reviewing legal documents is so boring that we decided we HAVE to brew next week. So get your mesh tank top and your fanny pack ready. It’s on.
